From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.12-20smp i686; en-US; 0.9) Gecko/20010226 BuildID: 2001022608 ezBoard, the site in the URL, currently has an advertiser with an extraordinarily slow server. To fix the problem, a number of people either try to hit 'escape' to stop the image from loading, or put the image server in their DNS as 127.0.0.1 so it doesn't get pulled. Mozilla, when presented with either of these situations, displays a blank page. In the first case, hitting 'escape' stops the image load, but nothing is displayed by Mozilla (despite the HTML being complete as shown by Show Page Source). In the second case, the page loads immediately, but nothing is shown by Mozilla (again, despite the HTML being complete). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Visit the URL. While the image is being requested (should take a good minute), hit 'escape'. The page will show blank, but Show Page Source will show that the HTML is complete. Next, put www1.bigbangmedia.com in /etc/hosts to point to 127.0.0.1 (bigbangmedia is the server that redirects to 22.214.171.124, which is the slow image server). Load the URL. The page should load immediately, but not display anything. Gnome 1.2, X 4.0.2, behind a proxying firewall.
The issue is that what is actually being loaded off www.bigbangmedia.com is a script included in <head> with <script src="..."> Since this is in <head> it has to be loaded and executed before the body is displayed. So if you hit stop you get nothing.... Not sure what's going on when the script can't get loaded becaues it's redirected to 127.0.0.1
Scott, Is this still a issue in the latest build ?
Seems to work with build 2001041214.
Based on the previous comments, marking works for me.
